American Coup: Election Fraud 2006 Risk Assessment Update

- Political junkies talk about two elections as they anticipate the November 6 mid term Congressional elections: 1982 and 1994. In 1982, the Democrats picked up 27 House seats as the country said no to the doctrinaire Reagan project. The Senate remained Republican that year. 1994 was a blow out of epic proportions. The Democrats lost 54 seats in the House and eight in the Senate. That election was the “gift that keeps giving.” See...

    Stateside: Rosalea Barker Hits The Waves & A Torque Shop

    - Torque is a measure of how much a force acting on an object causes that object to rotate. So if you put a handful of folks together who are determined to move conservative people's politics towards the progressive end of the spectrum then you have the torquing heads at the panel discussion I attended last week, What Are Americans Voting For?

    Climate Change: Russell Brown Concerns Himself With The PR Of Food Miles

    - If ever there was a place for good public relations, it's the "food miles" debate. The Stern report's use of New Zealand kiwifruit as an example of unacceptable food miles was wholly mistaken - our kiwifruit is shipped, not flown, to Europe, making ... See...

    Motornet: Karl Ferguson Takes A Spin In An Alpha

    - Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini – Italian exotica that causes most men to go just a little weak at the knees at even their passing mention. Unfortunately, such exotica is usually well beyond the reach of most mere mortals, which is why Alfa Romeo is such a god send. The gorgeous looks, the smell of the leather, the exquisitely machined and sexy alloys, everything about Alfa Romeos is alluring. See... MOTORNET: More Than Skin Deep – Alpha 147 Hatch [1]

    US Midterm Elections: GOP Spin Machine Set To Super Fast

    - Last week, President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and senior White House officials, in hopes of shoring up the GOP's sagging poll numbers before the November 7 midterm election, went on a media blitz, granting on-the-record interviews to dozens of conservative print and broadcast reporters. One of those interviews resulted in a backlash against the White House when Cheney told a reporter that, for him, water-boarding, a controversial technique used against terror suspects that simulates drowning, was a "no brainer."

    The Real Deal: Carolyn Baker's U.S. History Uncensored

    - American inventor and entrepreneur, Henry Ford, is famous not only for his astounding success in making the automobile available to nearly every American family in the 1920s, but also for his famous quote: “History is bunk.” Many historians, offended by Ford’s abrupt dismissal of the subject, defensively retort that history is not bunk and set out to prove their “case” regarding the relevance and significance of the study of history. The reader may be surprised to learn that on one level, I agree with Ford. See... Real Deal: U.S. History Uncensored - Introduction [1]
